New L.A. Marathon route unveiled --
"The 25th edition of the race, on March 21, will wind through downtown, pass through West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and end at the beach. Along the 26.2 miles, runners will pass landmarks including City Hall, the Capitol Records Building, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive and the Santa Monica Pier. "Listen: 26.2 miles is a long way to go on foot," said Russ Pillar, president of the L.A. Marathon. "The easiest way for us to do that is for us to pick a route that inspires." "Everybody's really stoked," said Steve Mackel, 47, a marathon coach from Pasadena who plans to run in the event. "I've never heard people be that excited about a new course as they have about this new L.A. course."" - Anika from Bookmarklet
